Hawkes launch party at the Hoxton Hotel

Early reports suggest summer will last until mid November in 2014 so we’re packing the cool bag now and getting set to flock off for the afternoon down London Fields.

If you care to join us, the drink of the day will be our East End neighbours Hawkes and their delicately concocted ginger beer, which infuses a few funky flaves to get you smiling while you sip.

With Kiwi and Mandarin, its refreshing and spicy making you want to glug it back and if you are screwed for an opener just twist to cap and you are away.

Sample for your sweet-selves at the Hawkes Ginger Beer Indoor Summer Party taking place at the Hoxton Hotel on Wednesday the 23rd of April from 7pm till Sunrise.
